The latest season of CW’s The Flash ended with a bang. And though Barry Allen, Iris West, and the rest of Team Flash finally defeated the seemingly insurmountable threat of Savitar, the Scarlet Speedster had to sacrifice his own freedom for the safety of everyone else.
With the Flash entering the prison within the Speed Force, he’s leaving behind his new fiancé Iris and the rest of his friends. But with everything Iris has been through over the last season, she’ll likely be the most affected by Barry’s absence when the show returns.
Patton was asked about the possibility of Iris taking on a bigger role within Team Flash given Berry’s absence, but she was understandably coy about the character’s position in Season 4 of the series.
“That’s a very interesting question that I can’t really answer!”
We'll find out more when the Flash returns to the CW this fall.
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timelineknown as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiyan Lonsdale) forever.
With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs — Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R. Wells (Tom Cavanaugh) — Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.
